After our all too brief stay in San Fran, we hired a car and drove onto the next leg of our trip – Yosemite. It was a little hair-raising negotiating our way out of downtown SF in a car whose steering wheel was located on the left-hand side of the vehicle and then drive confidently on the right hand side of the road but, obviously, when we made it unscathed. By the time we reached our accommodation in El Portal (5 minutes drive from the park entrance) it was already dark so the Yosemite landscape remained a present waiting to be unwrapped until the following morning. And, what a present to open. I’d heard the stories – ant sized climbers clinging to the face of El Capitan, soaring granite formations… Nothing really prepares you though. The scale of these rock formations are astounding and no photographs can do them justice. I don’t know, it was very humbling indeed and I’m still lost for words really; even now.
Perhaps you can help me out; if you’ve ever visited Yosemite – or would love to visit in the future – I’d dearly love to hear some of your thoughts or how you felt in the comments below. Thanks heaps everyone.
